Easily one of the most colorful DXRacer assortments that we’ve seen and definitely stands out. The green contrast and brightness of the chair alone is enough to grab your attention but what about the pricing? It’s true that while this DXRacer RW106 Gaming Chair costs more than your average chair, it’s really not highly priced compared to other chairs.
I personally dig the alien green color scheme, but some of the team didn’t find it as appealing. It's not that hard to see why some folks aren’t fans of color schemes that are as bright and loud as this one in particular. DXRacer really knows how to push a great design though, and I’m all for it. The contrasts between these two colors are great, simply because of how much the pop and grab attention. It makes you feel like you’re in the cockpit of a high-performance Monster Energy race machine.
Is the DXRacer RW106NE Racing Gaming Chair price worth it though? From the durable material to the practical design, we wanted to make sure this chair held up to DXRacer standards and got an appropriate rating from us. We can say right off the bat that you won’t be disappointed with the amount of comfort in this chair. It’s highly comfortable and the style is really cool.
DXRacer seems to have put in a great deal of thought into the design of this chair. It’s not as “buckety” as their usual fare, but it still provides plenty of race styling. The less concave surfaces actually lend to their comfort quite a bit, allowing them to throw in a little more padding and cushioning into the RW106 than you’d normally find on the more aggressive chairs from DXRacer. The only problem we seem to find with this chair is that certain parts of it aren’t as padded as they need to be. While most of the backrest and seat are comfortable soft, there are a few spots that seem to be much harder than most. The part of the seat closest to the backrest is one such area that is very noticeable. The shoulder braces will also prove to get a little annoying if you like to move around in your chair and multi-task. We see these as a part of a very small problem, but it’s enough of a problem to hold back what is already a very comfortable chair.
This is a chair that successfully goes above and beyond comfort. This chair has enhanced the experience of comfort that we’re used to in a gaming chair. The best thing is, it’s not just for gaming but you can use it as an office chair as well with the flat ergonomic design that allows it to blend in with an office desk. If you want to learn back, you can do that.
Cold cured foam is a huge upgrade over your typical cushion material. It is very responsive once it breaks in. When you sit down, you will sink in just enough for it to be comfortable, then when you get up it will expand right back to its original shape. It also is very durable and resists getting compacted.
This means you can work or game for much longer with the DXRacer RW106 Gaming Chair before feeling fatigue.
With the tilt back function, this chair allows you to recline to a position of comfort and once you’ve reached that desired position, simply lock in your position and relax or fall asleep. For added comfort, you can even fully adjust the arms as you see fit, whether it’s raising them up or bringing them down. The only downfall is that the tilt back mechanic only goes to 135 degrees rather than 180 degrees.
The lumbar pillow is adjustable so you can get it to where your lower back is comfortable and still given the support needed to prevent a backache.
Design & Style
This DXRacer RW106NE Racing Gaming Chair design is a very striking design and will probably stand out more than most DXRacer chairs. It’s hard not to notice when you see the lime bright green color in your face and the green that’s also attached to the very base of the chair as added footrests. The design of most DXRacer chairs is usually the same but there are several series of chairs.
The colors of the DXRacer RW106 Gaming Chair might not make it suitable for any office setting. If you work somewhere with lax rules or is not a stuffy environment, then you can certainly make a statement to your coworkers while working in absolute comfort.
Some chairs, like these Racing series chairs, prefer to have a wider base and like to accommodate larger people. While some designs like eSports edition chairs prefer to be a bit smaller and cater to the average gamer. One thing about the design though that no one can contest is that this chair is highly durable. It was designed to withstand repeatable adjustments under any condition.
DXRacer stands behind the durability of this chair so much that they even offer a durability and performance guarantee. If you’re not satisfied with this chair, you can get a 100% refund with no questions asked but most people never ask for one or need one. The base of the chair is built relatively strong and the tilt back was designed to withstand a lot of weight for people who like to tilt back and read or sleep in their DXRacer chair.
The materials used are meant to last. This means that even though the price of the chair may be high, and out of reach of some budgets, you get what you pay for. Since the chair lasts a long time, not only in terms of it still being able to be sat upon but also that it is as comfortable as ever, you will end up paying less in the long term since you won't be replacing your chair often.
The foam used in this chair is designed to retain its shape for years, without deteriorating. While certain factors like moisture and exposure to sunlight can cause some damage to the upholstery and the foam, keeping it indoors and providing it with a moderate amount of care will let this chair last you many years. The foam itself is high-density foam, making it resistant to wear from constant usage. A small perk to this type of foam is that it is a very good thermal insulator. This chair doesn’t feel drafty at all, even during the colder parts of the day.
DXRacer OH/RW106/NE Racing Series Gaming Chair
- Comfortable – For an extra security layer of comfort, you will even get a lumbar support pillow and a pillow that’s made to help support your neck. You won’t need to worry about aching bones or a sore back when you get up because this chair was designed to support every area of your body. The cushions provide comfort, but also support so you can sit for long periods without getting fatigued.
- The Style – We have to mention the overall style of the chair as it stands out more than most of the other DXRacer gaming chairs out on the market today. It’s very stylish and very bright, so it’s something you’ll notice in the room right away when you walk in. The arms may not speak much in terms of style but the base and the rest of the DXRacer RW106 Gaming Chair does with their green highlights.
- Tilt Back – If you want to lean back and enjoy your experience or go to sleep, you can tilt back to a comfortable 135-degree angle and while a lot of DXRacers are able to go up to 180 degrees, this one feels just as comfortable. While a 180-degree recline would require a much stronger base that’s designed to withstand the weight distribution problems that come with such an extreme recline, the 135-degree recline on the RW106 gets rid of the more expensive base by simply not tilting to such an extreme angle. What we really appreciate with this chair is that it feels a bit more agile to move around. Its lighter weight is paired with DXRacer’s exceptionally smooth casters to provide a roll that doesn’t require much effort to control. We also love how easily we can maneuver the RW106 while having the tilt all the way back and are pretty impressed with how well this chair is balanced, even with its light weight.
- Warranty – If for whatever reason, you’re not satisfied 100% with your purchase, DXRacer has offered to let you have a full refund with no questions asked. You’ll have to contact DXRacer for the full specifications and limitations on this warranty.
Things We Liked
- We really enjoyed the bright green style and thought it added a nice splash of color to any room it was in
- We love the strong nylon base caps of the wheels and how easily they move across different textures without making a noise or scratching the floor
- The armrests of the chair were pretty comforting as well to our surprise as most armrests are usually hard, solid and not desirable to have your arms on
- The extra back support provided by the lean design of this chair was also relatively nice as it allowed for maximum enjoyment whether you were sitting upright or leaning back
